-old in the country. today, obama is visiting a prekindergarten classroom at an early childhood learning center and then he's speaking at a community recreation center in georgia. later this afternoon the president has another google fireside plus hangout. it is a modern day spin-off of roosevelt's fireside chat. the president will talk more about his state of the union address and you can join him at the white house.gov the white house's youtube page. >> the proposed increase would take place over the next two years and would take the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour up to $9. speaker boehner is saying that would cause more problem for the nation's unemployment and the reason why people have minimum wage jobs is because they come into the labor force with no skills. someone working a full time minimum wage job is only making $15,000 a year. that's barely above the poverty line and that's before paying taxes, before paying into medicare and social security. white house officials say raising the minimum wage would have no negative effect on the nation's unemployment and would give some 20 million
totally unrelated to chuck hagel as defense secretary is what president obama was doing during the benghazi attack. hagel remains in limbo, as does defense secretary leon panetta, who isn't exactly sure when he will be able to return to his california walnut groves. >> this is, i believe, my final press conference here at the pentagon briefing room. there are moments when i thought i was part of the last act of an italian opera. you're not sure exactly when it would end, and when the fat lady would sing. >> for now the only certainty is much more congressional uncertainty. joy, does leon panetta need a shirt that says "i survived a chuck hagel filibuster and all i got was this lousy t-shirt?" just when he thinks it can't get worse, it's actually seemingly gotten worse. >> this is insane. i mean, last night i went through, and i was looking at the george w. bush cabinet nominations. none of which were filibustered. just for fun. just because i knew we were talking about it. his second term cabinet nominations, the majority went through by voice vote. they didn't even bother to t
viewers like you. thank you. >> woodruff: fresh from addressing the nation, president obama opened a new campaign today to sell his second-term economic plan. in turn, republicans dismissed most of his ideas as the failed policies of the past. the president flew south today, going directly to voters with his ideas for creating jobs and boosting the middle class. the post state of the union tour began in asheville, north carolina, at a plant that makes heavy-duty engines. he picked up where he had left off with his message the night before. >> our job as americans is to restore that basic bargain that says if you work hard, if you're willing to meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead. ( applause ) you can get ahead. doesn't matter what you look like, doesn't matter where you come from. our middle class, when it's growing, when it's thriving, when there are ladders of opportunity for people to do a little bit better each year and make sure that their kids are doing even better than them, that's the american dream. that's what we gotta fight for. that has to be the north star that gui

jump over. last month when president obama was sworn into his second term, i was reminded of something he said four years ago in his first inauguration. the president said, "the question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small but whether it works, whether it helps families finds a job at a decent wage, care they can afford or retirement that is dignified." what we have seen from this president is reckless spending and a heavy hand in regulation. at the time of the president's first inauguration, the unemployment rate was 7.8%. at the time of his second inauguration, it was exactly the same and this month unemployment rose to 7.9%. while the rate of unemployment has been mostly stagnant, the national debt has not. in the past four years of failed obama policies, the nation has added $6 trillion of new debt onto the backs of citizens and businesses. today our national debt stands at $16.4 trillion, broken down by american citizens, that's $52,210 for every man, woman and child in this country. we must get back on the right track and bring optimism into busines
'm tempted to describe president obama's spending and tax ideas as small ball, but they're worse than that. they represent a conscious decision to neglect some of the most pressing issues that confront our country. you might even say it's a dereliction of duty in the battle to save america. last week, the congressional budget office projected that our gross national debt will increase from $16 trillion in 2012 to $26 trillion in 2023. now, that may seem like a long way off, but just since president obama has been president, the national debt's gone up by 55%, just in the last four years. but if you project that forward to 2023 when some of these young men and women who are working here as pages will be looking at entering the work force and looking at their futures, all they will see ahead of them is debt and a reduced standard of living. this is what lies ahead for all of us unless we embrace real spending cuts and unless we deal with the unfunded liabilities of medicare and social security. now, president obama has a secret strategy for getting our debt under control, we'd all love to he
think a lot of frustration should go back to the obama administration. it was the obama administration insist we have sequester if the debt super-committee failed to reach an agreement and they failed to reach an agreement. i remember very specifically at one of the presidential debates president obama told governor romney sequestration is not going to happen. two weeks away and looks like it will happen. it will be devastating for the military. we're talking about curtailed military operations around the globe. reduced funding for mint nance and training. 800,000 dod citizens are looking for furlough or forced time without pay. this will be devastating and we're just getting started with sequestration. bill: the last point you just made a lot of people haven't talked about. 800,000 people coput on furlough for minimum of 22 days, three weeks. back to what panetta saying there, i look for members to work to us and can't sit here and complain. he used a different word. i use complain the is he talking about republicans or democrats as well? >> he is talking about both democrats and repu
. then president obama discusses job creation. and new guidelines on cyber security. we'll get to jack lew's confirmation in a moment. first the cbo director douglas elmendorf testimony. he warned of the sequester could cost 750,000 jobs. >> could you tell me in terms of the negative economic impact of the sequester, the .6%, what does that translate in point of lost jobs? >> our estimate is that the sequester alone would reduce gdp growth this year by zero point six percentage points. it would lower that gdp at the end of the year. we think that would reduce by about 750,000 jobs. >> 750,000 jobs between now and the end of 2013, right? >> right. >> that is a whole lot of jobs. we should be working overtime to prevent that kind of job loss. if you were to replace the deficit reduction through that austerity program, the cuts to the sequester with a plan that accomplishes the same amount of deficit reduction spread over the 10 year period, you would not have that hit on jobs? >> right. >> our analysis, the republican leader, mr. cantor had it right last september when he said that if we all
'm grateful to president obama. it has been honored to serve and his cabinet and as his chief of staff. i'm humbled by his faith in me. thank you to the members of the committee for meeting with me over the last week and sharing your insights. this committee plays a singular role in defining our tax, trade, health care, and social security policies. with your collaboration, this committee is a clear example that bipartisan can produce real results for all americans. i pledge that if confirmed, i will maintain frequent consultation with you in accordance with that spirit of respect. this is a fundamental thread in my life. i took part in negotiations that led to an agreement with president reagan to save social security. under president clinton, i helped negotiate an agreement to balance the federal budget. i oversaw three budget surpluses in a row. my experience and senior leadership positions in government at new york university, where i have the highest honor the university has, the gallatin award after albert gallatin, who also founded nyu, it was the largest private university in the

wrong? details ahead. >>steve: president obama painted a pretty picture of our economy in his state of the union a couple of nights ago. but was he telling the truth? >> why do you keep lying to the american people? a castro-like speech last night, albeit in english, lie after lie. aisle tell you why you keep lying. because your record stinks. >>steve: that's harsh. more from mark levin. >>brian: have you met your perfect political match? a new fox poll says even in love politics do matter. sorry james carville and mary matalin.

want to be vindictive, that this is now about president obama and that in the end if they continue this, they will look petty, as one source put it. >> and i just want to be precise, dana bash, this vote is still continuing. we don't know if the vote has failed or succeeded or what's going on. but we assume that there aren't -- what you're hearing is that there aren't probably five republicans who will join 55 democrats in breaking this filibuster? >> reporter: that's right. going in, the democrats did not think that they had the 60 votes and we could only potentially find three republicans who were going to agree to stop this filibuster but we probably will see this any minute. the vote is technically over but sometimes they have to wait for senators to come in to cast their votes. one thing i will say, though, is we were talking about the fact that probably hagel will be confirmed after the senators come back from a week-long recess. at this point i'm a little bit gun-shy. i wouldn't even take that to the bank and the reason is because we've seen this before. i had several republican
